As there are subscribers who may not be on other mass mail lists – it is best to get all the news OUT.

PLEASE pass on as you see fit – and share your experiences on blog if you wish…..I have heard some pretty comical call recollections!

Also – when we share what we have said – it may help others to frame what they wish to say…..give them some “ammo” – or expound on something you may have started.

Here’s the news!

MTCIA fundraisers

Lots of fundraisers coming up. Informative speakers, bands, mingling, and grown up drinks for those who attend. These are a great way to meet other warriors in your area and raise money for the fight. Look to see if one is coming to a town near you. I’ve attached the flyer for the Bozeman mixer. Please feel free to print and distribute.

A NOTE FROM ED…LOOKS WHO’S RUNNING FOR GOVERNOR!

Senator Wanzenried is running for Governor he stood up for us and now we need to stand up for him. I have spent many hours talking to Dave on the topic of medical marijuana and I am convinced he is the only gubernatorial candidate that fully supports us. Dave was the first Senator to sponsor the amendments to sb423 and a true friend.  I am asking everyone to forward this email if we can get $10.00 out of a couple thousand supporters we can greatly help his run for office. This man is dedicated to the rights of Montanans, I will donate my $10.00 now here http://wanz2012.com/

and go “like” Dave for governor on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dave-Wanzenried-for-Governor-of-Montana-2012/203448116354832

unlikely to be complete before June. Sit tight, the delay is absolutely
unavoidable. However, what we can do now…

Organize Volunteer Signature Gatherers

We need a small army organized in the next 2 weeks and we still need another 500 volunteers. If you think you can gather 20+ signatures, please step up by emailing your name, city/county and phone number to petition@mtcia.org

YOU CAN’T SIGN THE REFERENDUM IF YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED TO VOTE!!!double check that you are registered to vote and that all information is correct. your signature can be disqualified for a wrong address, misspelled name, etc.

RAIDS

IF YOU HEAR ANYTHING ABOUT POLICE ACTIVITY AGAINST THOSE INVOLVED W/ CANNABIS, CONTACT ME! STAND PEACEFULLY BY, OBSERVE, REPORT, SUPPORT!

or even better, sign up for ASA’s raid response and/or text alert and give them a call. Also a good idea to call MT NORML, post on facebook, whatever. Just get the word out! We need to be standing together in HUGE numbers that they can’t ignore.

FEDERAL CANNABIS BILLS! CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE AND TELL THEM TO SUPPORT!
